Jeanne Brown and her daughter Katrina greet lawmakers in the House Chambers as she fights to pass a no  texting while driving bill.  Named in honor of a Texas texting while driving victim, the Alex Brown Memorial Act will provide a uniform statewide approach to curb this unsafe practice and will go a long way in helping educate drivers on the dangers posed by texting while driving and ultimately, save lives, says co-sponsors Senator Judith Zaffirini and Rep. Tom Craddick, who both have proposed bills banning texting while driving.
